Healthcare Focussed Blockchain Releases White Paper, Token Sale to Come
Global decentralized health platform MintHealth™ has announced the release of its associated white paper – ‘Aligning Stakeholders in a New Healthcare Ecosystem’ – ahead of a planned Vidamint token sale planned for Q1 of 2018. The company has also announced the addition of Wyche “Tee” Green, III, founder and director of Greenway Health™, to the MintHealth Board of Directors.
The two key issues that MintHealth aims to tackle are the lack of a patient-controlled health record that can be shared with key stakeholders, and an incentive model to promote proactive patient behaviours to combat increasing chronic disease related healthcare costs. MintHealth’s patient-controlled health record is to include key laboratory, medication, diagnosis, care plan, complex medical imaging, patient generated behaviour data, and key vital signs generated outside of the clinic including weight, blood pressure, sleep, stress levels, glucose, and others. The platform takes information from electronic health record systems, as well as from all personal sources of patient-generated data including web, mobile apps and connected devices. Permissions for data access will be granted by patients via smart contracts embedded in the blockchain.
